Lowepro Vertex 200 AW Expert Reviews
CNET reviews the Lowepro Vertex 200 AW and writes;
“Since the Vertex 200 AW is meant to carry a lot of gear, it makes sense that it has a hardcore harness system. The harness has eight adjustment points, ergonomically contoured shoulder straps, a well-padded waistbelt, and a chest strap that stretches, so it can expand and contract with your chest as you breathe. Once you have the harness system properly adjusted, the Vertex 200 AW lets you carry lots of gear very comfortably. Plus, if you need room for one or two more lenses, you can always add a pouch or two.”
Photographyreview reviews the Lowepro Vertex 200 AW and writes;
“The bottom line is that Lowepro’s Vertex series backpacks offer the serious outdoor photographer an excellent camera carrying solution. I can’t find anything about the Vertex 200 AW that really bothers me. I’ve used it extensively to hike, travel, carry to events, and just throw in the car. Nothing has torn, jammed, come apart, or given me any trouble. Like I said earlier, the harness system on the Vertex is excellent, making it very comfortable to carry a lot of gear.”
Audioholics reviews the Lowepro Vertex 200 AW and writes;
“This bag is very well made and reasonably priced at $232.99. Despite a few minor complaints, the Vertex 200 AW is a great bag for a professional, semi-professional, or serious hobbyist who needs a lot of equipment at their side so they are ready for any situation.”
The-digital-picture reviews the Lowepro Vertex 200 AW and writes;
“The Lowepro Vertex 200 AW Backpack very comfortably carries my current Dell Latitude D630 notebook. The main storage compartment lid obviously becomes heavier with a notebook computer stored in it – care should be exercised when opening it. The computer is in a padded section, but you still do not want to subject it to the unnecessary impact of dropping the lid open.”
Lowepro Vertex 200 AW User Reviews
2 weeks and 6 cities in Turkey later
“Despite the previous reviewers comments, I found the Vertex 200 to be very comfortable when it was completely adjusted. But to adjust it for maximum comfort I tightened all the straps very tight. Between the waist strap, shoulder straps and the chest strap, I thought it was about as comfortable as any other way for me to carry that much gear without being a roll-bag. I like that the zippers are water-proof even though I never had to test that feature. The top handle is sturdy and comfortable when the bag is off.” – By Jeff N.
Nice camera backpack
“Very good camera backpack with lots of space to caryy camera and it’s accessories.
But the laptop compartment looks to be small for 15.4 inch and very tight. one more drawback is we can not keep the manuals and laptop together.” – By U. M. V. Rao
The best photo backpack for me… thus far
“It is well made, just like all of the Lowepro product (they are the overall best camera bag company), The harness is the best of the bunch; absolutely no question about it. Furthermore, the harness system has all of the various straps to fine tune the fit, which is important, the more you carry. The bag has enough of the little various pockets that a photographer will require. The cpu slot; not essential to me but ok…” – By Harry M. Shin
